The Cargo Bib Short (Men's) with Pockets is designed to help you ride further than ever before. 4 large pockets allow you to store large quantities of nutrition, inner tubes, tool kits, spare clothing and more. These pockets are made from a tough & stretchy nylon fabric that is snag-resistant.

A Bib Short Built for Long Distance Rides

This bib short is designed to help you crush big miles in comfort. It is made for rides of more than 5 hours and has been ridden in events such as :

  • Transcontinental Race
  • Paris-Brest-Paris
  • Race Across America
  • Pacific Coast Bicycle Race
What can these pockets carry? :

The model in these photos is 6 foot 3.5 inch, 38" Hip & Glute circumference, weighs 180 lbs. He is wearing a size L (Regular) and is carrying the following items, with room for more :

  • Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone & 1 Gel with room for 2 more (thigh pocket)
  • 3 cereal bars, with room for 1 more (thigh pocket)
  • Banana & 2 inner tube (lower rear pocket)
  • Pump, Tyre Levers & 1 inner tube (upper rear pocket)
Available in 2 Inseam Lengths:

This bibshort is available in 2 inseam lengths - Regular & 2" Shorter Inseam. The 2" Shorter inseam version is a Regular Length with 2" taken off the legs. It's tailored for riders who need bibshorts with shorter legs.

For example : A 180 lbs (81kg) rider who is 5 foot 6" would need a size XL or 2XL for his girth. However, the size XL (Regular) or 2XL (Regular) will be too long for him. He will need the size XL (2" Shorter Inseam) or size 2XL (2" Shorter Inseam) for his 5 foot 6" height.

Note for Returning Customers :

This bib short has been designed to retain the same fit, feel and performance as the bibshorts you've been purchasing for years from RedWhite. The only major change is the new Silicone Macro-Dot Gripper (see photos). This gripper was chosen for 2 reasons :

  1. It is more durable and doesn't overstretch with use. It stays grippy longer than the gripper used in our older bibshorts.
  2. It grips knee and leg warmers & coolers better. You can easily slip this gripper over the ends of your knee / leg coverings and have it hold those coverings better than the old grippers.

Keen eyed customers would notice the new rubber logo stitched on left thigh. This rubber logo has been ride-tested extensively. You won't notice it while riding. It is also washing-machine friendly and durable. Please note to only wash your bibshort in a cold wash cycle and never use a dryer-machine. Heat damages lycra and rubber.

    Cargo Bibshorts get 2 thumbs up!

    Have now put in about 300km of riding in the new Cargo bibshorts. Longest ride was a 126km hilly spin. These are my 5th or 6th (?) RedWhite bibs - so, obvs I like the brand and products. First off, definitely glad I followed advice and SIZED UP. All other RedWhite bibs have been Medium, but these are Large. Putting them on for first time I was "Oh gracious me, these do hug one 'tightly'!" Had I got my regular Mediums...Herakles himself couldn't have squeezed me into them. True story. Nonetheless, the tighter Cargo bibs were in no way uncomfortably tight, and offered no extra resistance to pedaling compared to my older RedWhite The Bib bibs. The new leg grippers are a welcome upgrade. The older versions did loosen up after 6 months or so, and didn't grip leg warmers so well. These seem far sturdier and grippier too. The chamois is great - but the RedWhite chamois always are. I've done 500km rides in 'well worn' pairs and had no issue, this chamois feels familiar, supportive and cushiony without bulk. The rear pocket is accessible if you go totes handsfree/ stop I s'pose, but can't see it being super useful - however the 2 side pockets are awesome. They are very tight, very secure, breathable (I sweat like 2 pigs - so this was important to me), and well positioned. I have a big Galaxy S23 phone in a Quadlock case - so it is bulky - but it felt fine, easily accessible and never slid about, nor irritated the thighs. Kinda still miss the old logo,'s all good. Will be buying a 2nd and probably 3rd pair this year to make the permanent transition to these on all my outdoor rides.

    Great quality

    I’m 5’8” and was ver surprised with the size I was recommended.
    I highly suggest requesting what size is recommend for you build.
    The shorts are very comfortable and great quality.
    Highly recommended

    HI Paul, really happy you like the shorts and took my sizing advice :). For everyone else, Paul is 5 foot 8', 170 lbs and has a 41' glute circumference. I recommended a size XL (Regular) in The Cargo Bib Short which worked great for him. It is a strange size and one he wouldn't have purchased on his own. But going by my sizing charts, the XL is absolutely the right choice. 41' puts him right between XL and 2XL according to my sizing charts and i'm happy the XL worked great for him.

    I encourage all customers to use the Sizing HelpDesk, particularly for The Cargo Bib Short.

    - Yuva, Founder

    Excellent communication & Excellent product!

    Back in Nov2021, I really wanted to try out Redwhite bibs after being recommended by my friends. I proceed to consult Yuva on suitable sizing and unfortunately being short@1.68m with 72cm inseams & 72kg (short & stocky build) , there weren't any suitable bib sizes for me at that point in time (XL bibs fits me but it will be too long for me). Yuva advised me not to buy now & to wait for new product launch instead.

    Fast-forward 1 year, Dec22 I have finally gotten my 1st Redwhite cargo bibs & I love them! I have gotten XL with & 2" Shorter Inseam and it fits me perfectly.
    The Chamois is plush and comfy & I love the flexibility of cargo bibs where I can load up gels & stuff in the pockets!
    After using it for >5 months , the bibs are holding up great!

    Simply the best

    This is my 2nd pair of cargo bibs and this new generation of them is perfect ( XL with the shorter inseam ). Yuva was spot on with his size recommendation for my 40" glutes, 169cm height and 79kg, short and swarthy. I will never buy another pair of bibs that isn't cargo, and have tried a couple of other brands but always come back to RedWhite. I do lots of 6-10 hr rides and the pad is perfect, never any issues. I also have 3 pairs of the regular bibs ( first pair bought in 2019 ), but those only get used on the trainer now, the cargo bibs are just so much handier to store snacks, extra clothes, whatever I need for long days out on the gravels. They're also quite durable as they're also my goto shorts for MTB'ing. Now Yuva just needs to add cargo pockets on the bib tights!!

    Consistantly good products

    This is now my 4th pair of red white bibs, and my second pair of the cargo bibs. The product is good quality and I feel a better quality than the first set of cargo bibs I purchased. The leg grippers have changed, which made me a little nervous however they have proved to be good quality, work well and don't irritate my legs. The construction is sound and the chamois comfortable. Although the fabric of the chamois still runs, it is not as bad as the original ones. A great durable product, well made. I am have ridden the bibs for endurance rides of up to 1000km and they have performed without issue. The fit has also been consistent over all the bibs I have purchased.

    Excellent product

    First time I'm dropping a substantial amount of $$ on bib shorts and I have to say it's well worth it. Got a great sizing recommendation and it fits so well. No sore bums on any of my rides so far and can barely feel my saddle.

    Colin Parker (Salt Lake City, Utah, United States)
    Exceeded expectations!

    I bought these because I wanted a good pair of Cargo bibs for long, unsupported rides. Based off of reviews, I thought I'd give them a try. The quality and comfort far exceeds that of far more expensive bibs. I'll definitely buy another pair. They do run a little on the small side, so buy a size larger than normal.

    Great Product

    I really love this bib. As I buy in the past 6 years only RW bibs since they are so comfortable and long lasting.
    In this version of the bib it’s well notice the new updates. Great feeling while wearing and riding.

    Incredible bib shorts

    Love the cargo shorts! Riding down the east coast of America...hammering on the miles in comfort with Red/White! Highly recommended!!!

    Daniel Deuel (Boulder, Colorado, United States)
    Great bibshorts

    Great quality bibshorts with well positioned pockets. The sizing help desk made finding the correct size easy. My first pair had a small stitching tear on it and Yuva had a new pair sent to me the day I reached out.
